THOR Wood siding is 100 percent natural and ecological, contains no damaging chemicals, and is processed with water-based stains that have low harmful volatile organic compound (voc) emissions.

About Torrefaction

For the torrefaction used when manufacturing THOR Wood siding, the material is gradually heated to approximately 130°C for about 20 hours, which effectively equalizes it and reduces the moisture level to close to zero percent. Next, the wood is heated to about 200°C in order to thermally modify the molecular structure. With this procedure, the amber color is provided and the wood is less prone to moisture level fluctuations.

Heat treatment at an intense level is the key to the durability, stability, and damage resistance of THOR Wood siding. Quality assurance for every phase ensures optimal effect of torrefaction in general. A steady lowering of the temperature, along with the controlled addition of water vapor, is responsible for bringing the moisture level of each piece of wood back up to between 4 percent and 7 percent, restoring flexibility and completing the process.
